Fresh Strawberry Jam
2 cups frozen or fresh strawberries, if frozen thaw
1 cup frozen apple juice concentrate, thawed
2 tablespoons agave nectar
2 tablespoons Instant Clear Jel
Place all ingredients in blender in order given. Add Clear Jel carefully so it doesn’t stick to the sides of the blender.
Cover blender and turn on low for about 3 seconds—just enough for everything to go through the blades and mix in the jel. Too much blending makes the berry seeds separate doesn’t look as nice.
Remove to a container and chill. It will get thicker as it sits.
Tip: Don’t have Instant Clear Jel? Use 2 ½ tablespoons cornstarch dissolved in a small amount of apple juice. Add the rest of the apple juice and juice drained from the thawed berries. (Don’t add the berries yet.) Bring the juice to a boil while stirring. Cool in the refrigerator for about an hour and then stir in the berries.
